What’s Momma Listening to? Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat


9RWYM

In wanting to try and have some sense of normalcy so that I don’t completely lose my mind I’m here to bring you my favorite podcast of the week!

I actually listen to this religiously every week. It helps me to feel informed. There isn’t any propaganda. It is strictly facts from a moderate stand-point.

The podcast is Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat with Ben Kissel and Marcus Parks!

It’s the only political podcast I’ve been able to find that stays in the middle. It speaks to me because I am a moderate Liberal. I’m fed up with Washington, with politicians and with the excuses and so are the hosts.

They talk about what is happening all over the country and all over the world. The discussions can get heated but never become personal. That is something we have lost as a society. They ability to converse without feeling like we’re being personally attacked. This happens on both sides so please don’t accuse me of choosing one side over the other. They both carry the blame and in the same breath can both provide a solution.

If you’re into politics or not and are looking for information without rhetoric then I definitely recommend you check out Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat.

New shows post every Friday on wherever you get your podcast! You can also check them their Facebook group.

#Momlife: Year One


I know that I’ve been a mother, technically, since the moment of inception but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my first year as a mother to a living, breathing, human-being.

To say that it has changed me and my world is a total and complete understatement. Of course it has, if it didn’t I would completely judge myself. Creating, growing and nurturing a human being is a life changing experience. It is always on my mind.

Am I doing this right?

Am I doing that right?

Why isn’t she sleeping through the night?

Do all her teeth have to come in at once?

Why don’t I understand all her cries and whines? Shouldn’t I know these things by now? Why do they keep changing? Continue reading “#Momlife: Year One”

Politics Do Not Define Me


I feel it necessary to make this known. I guess I haven’t been very obvious or forthcoming in my views and I would like to rectify that now.

I am registered as a Democrat. But I do not vote down party lines. As a human, I am a complex being. I do not think on a one dimensional level. My views change and grow just as I do. It is in thinking this way that I assume that others are the same way. Yes, yes I know what is said about assumptions but I think my thought process is valid.

It won’t last forever…..


How has the New Year of 2017 been for all of you?

For me it’s been non-stop. In my real-life, outside of my blogging world, I have not been able to catch a breath. I’ve worked long hours and have tried my hardest to squeeze as many hours as I can out of the day to spend with my husband and daughter. 24 hours is not enough time.

I’m grateful for my mother during this time, more so than I am at any other time. If it cannot be me who is spending quality hours with my child then I am comforted by the fact that it is my mother. She is catching the smiles and milestones on camera. It’s with great sadness that I think the first time I see my daughter walk that it will be on film because I’ll be at work.

I’m like a week behind posting this, I still need to figure out this schedule my baby has me on. It seems to change each day and I just hang on and hope I survive. Have you heard of sleep regression? It can start between 3-5 months so my daughter being the over-achiever that she is decided to start right at 3 months. I have forgotten in the last week what sleep is exactly.
